Freeway closed for more blasting
The Transportation Division of El Dorado County’s Community Development Agency will implement full closures of both directions of U.S. 50 between El Dorado Hills Boulevard and Bass Lake Road, as well as closures of the Latrobe Road on-ramp to eastbound U.S. Highway 50, the Bass Lake Road on-ramp to westbound U.S. Highway 50, and White Rock Road between Valley View Parkway and Entrada Circle.
These closures will occur on the following Sundays: Aug. 3, Aug. 10 and Aug. 17.
The closure times will be as follows:
Ramps to U.S. 50: 4 to 8 a.m.
Mainline U.S. 50: 6 to 8 a.m.
White Rock Road / Silva Valley Parkway: 5 to 8 a.m.
These closures are necessary to facilitate blasting operations on the south side of U.S. Highway 50 at the county’s Silva Valley interchange project. While the closures are in place, both directions of U.S. Highway 50 traffic will be detoured around the closures via El Dorado Hills Boulevard, Serrano Parkway and Bass Lake Road. Motorists are encouraged to take other alternate routes around the area which also bypass the closures. Portable changeable message signs will be placed around the work zone to keep motorists updated on any changes to the timing of the closures.
Questions regarding these temporary closures may be directed to the Aradhana Kochar, the county’s resident engineer for this project, at (916) 599-5673 or via e-mail at [email protected]
